2016 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay

Granny Smith apple, wet chalk, toasty, savory French oak aromas, hint of browned butter, but the oak treatment is elegant enough to allow a lemon-blossom, floral character to emerge in the wine’s nose.

Savory oak meets green-apple Jolly Ranchers with persistent apple and tropical fruit through the finish. Well integrated (wood andfruit) for such a young wine and offers a lot of subtle and delicious flavors early in its life. There’s a lot to love here-bright and rich, savory and nervey, balanced and delicious. Glasses empty quickly.

This wine is begging for some seafood poached in butter or presented with a Beurre Blanc sauce: sand dabs, sea bass, black cod. Hints of tropicality in the wine lend themselves to ideas of bacon wrapped shrimp with mango salsa, or traditional matches like Brie or Tomme-style cheeses.

Drink or hold until 2022, longer for full maturity.

Cases Produced: 500

Winemaker: Wes Hagen

2016 Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

Big, bright, primary, cherry / red berry, spicy, sauvage and showy. Expect classic Santa Maria; Valley Pinot Noir aromas.

‘Dead to rights’ classic Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir: brambly, peppery bright and ripe cherry fruit, hints of game and saline mineral: bright, enticing, fruity with great liveliness in the palate and on the finish.

Insanely versatile with food. Safe to match with salmon, pork, chicken, lighter beef and game dishes such as tri-tip, quail, venison. Try it with a grilled goat-cheese napoleon with eggplant and root vegetables. The current brightness of this wine could make it a candidate for illuminating earthy dishes such as lentil stew, hummus, Cuban black beans and rice.

Drink or hold until 2025.

Winemaker: Wes Hagen
